La Nouvelle Revue Française (NRF, or The New French Review in English) is a literary magazine founded in 1909 by a group of intellectuals including André Gide, Jacques Copeau, and Jean Schlumberger.[1] In 1911, Gaston Gallimard became editor of the revue, which led to the founding of the publishing house, Éditions Gallimard.

Established writers such as Paul Bourget and Anatole France contributed to the magazine from its early days. The magazine's influence grew until, during the interwar period, it became the leading literary journal, occupying a unique role in French culture. The first published works by André Malraux and Jean-Paul Sartre were in the pages of the Revue.

After liberation, the magazine was banned for collaborationism, but reopened in 1953 (initially with a "new" title: La Nouvelle Nouvelle Revue Française). The Revue was a monthly for many years, but is currently a quarterly.
